Editorial by Matt Bud from the November 23, 2020 Newsletter

Every once in a while I get an assignment for The FECG that draws more than its fair share of attention. I think our all time high a few years ago was an assignment that drew 225 responses. However, even when you get an assignment that draws more than say 40 responses, it can get a little difficult to see the forest for the trees. And, with all that talent to choose from, those who provide the clearest presentation of their credentials are the ones we are most likely to send to our client for consideration. To be very honest, it’s hard to justify forcing our client to “read between the lines” when you have so many better submissions. Here [ Read more… ]

Agenda

Here's the planned agenda:
• Pre-meeting chit-chat and wait time for late arrivals. Housekeeping and announcements – 10 minutes or so.
• 20 Second Commercials – everyone gives his / her pitch. I’ll enforce the time. Get to the point and don’t ramble. 15-20 minutes or so depending on participants.
• Any specific questions or items to share?
• I want to use the rest of the time to address each job seeker’s needs (ten to twelve minutes per person on average). Apologies, to the veterans, but I will devote this time to those who need it most. I’ll prioritize to new members and those with long-term job searches. We have averaged about 14 people in our 1st two meetings.
o A general comment: I have noted that most people have not sufficiently done their individual assessment and cannot articulate their value proposition well. Also, they think they are networking effectively, but are not.
o For those of you who have never been to a Princeton or Monmouth/Ocean meeting, we focus on one individual and start by asking, “What’s going on?” and “How can we help you?”
o We all learn from each other and this format gives our veterans a chance to help. You get input from everyone.
o We drill down with feedback that is both constructive, well-intentioned, and tough. “Drill” might be the operative word. One of my veterans has described this as “the discussion you don’t want to have but need too.” Another (who successfully withstood the feedback) has called it “brain surgery with a chain-saw.”
o That may be too harsh but be prepared. I hope this does not scare you off. There is a proven method to our madness. I guarantee we will help guide you through a better and shorter job-search.
o I figure we can address at least 5 or more people given our time constraints.

If we run out of time or if someone still needs help, we may be able to continue off-line. Of course, I am always available for anyone who needs further help. Let’s see how this works.

Agenda

Please join us for the Learn From Latman series.
Marty will discuss “In- transition Now What do I do?

Being in-transition for a short or long period of time can be a very stressful. You can get depressed, angry and confused. You can lose your self-confidence. What can you do to change this situation? How do you get back into the “game”? How do you change this negative situation into a positive experience?

Marty Latman discusses a topic all people in-transition struggle with. Attendees at all levels will learn about the obstacles they need to overcome during this period to succeed, the methods they need to use to change their situation and ways to make being in-transition a productive, meaningful and positive time in their lives.
